ok so once i plug in my semi acoustic into my marshal 15dfx and switch on overdrive at either high gain or high volume....wierd screeching sound...DAMN I HATE IT...

1)Is it possible to remove the sound by using humbucking pickups if they are available for semi's?
2)If the are, is it safe to cut off the existing wire off the pick and connect the pots to the new humbucker????
3)Any other suggestions??

What acoustic electric do you have? The sound you mention is feedback, and depends on the quality of your pickup and the style of your guitar.

Edit: also, your amp is not meant for an acoustic. Acoustic electrics sound horrible through an electric-only amplifier, so expect plenty of feedback and very poor tone.

I can't even find a picture of that guitar. I've never seen a humbucker on an acoustic except for Kurt Cobain's guitar. Humbuckers are not meant for acoustic guitars. They have a terribly harsh sound and dampen the soundboard so much that they are completely redundant.

Pictures would help your situation. Also, a soundhole cover would help your feedback situation: http://www.samash.com/catalog/showitem.asp?SKU=UFBR2&ovchn=FRO&ovcpn=FROOGLE&ovcrn=UFBR2&ovtac=CMP

It really depends on the humbucker. Yes, there *are* humbucker pickups for an acoustic, but its entirely different from those on an electric. I'd recommend you first try a soundhole cover before replacing your pickup. 90% of the time, that is the cause of feedback. It's also much cheaper.

Then replacing the pickup may be your best option. I can't say much for the wiring without seeing it. You might want to remove the wiring and add shielding.
